It used to be that when a movie became a trilogy (especially a planned one) it meant something. It was a very rare thing. How many years was it between Star Wars and Back to the Future to The Star Wars Prequels? Thanks to the success of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, it seems like a lot of movies are now being split in two for no storytelling reason. Kill Bill Vol 1 and 2? Harry Potter? Ok, I’ll give you splitting Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, on paper, was a good idea, it was an 800 page book, but in execution? One 3-Hour movie probably would have been better. Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn? Oh, hell nah….Now we have the absolute worst example of this new trend – Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit.

Any movie that opens with the hero (played by Xavier Samuel) doing an exaggerated Darth Vader esq “Nooooooo!” after losing his brother in a freak Shark attack should tell you everything you need to know about how seriously you should take it. The opening sequence and a name like Bait 3D means you are in for some a campy good time. Someone forgot to tell the Director Kimble Rendall and the producers that’s what the audience wants.
I’m not sure why John Carter failed at the Box Office, I enjoyed the movie for what it was and thought it had the makings to be a pretty decent franchise. It is now available in a nice Blu-ray 3D Combo pack that includes the 3D, 2D and Digital Copy version of the film.
